It’s finally time for them to enjoy the fame and fortune that they’ve always known they deserved.

Production on People Just Do Nothing: Big In Japan began back in 2019 – a year after the show shared its fifth and final season. Written by Steve Stamp and Allan Mustafa, the film is directed by Jack Clough, who worked on the original series as well as on shows likes Skins.
Speaking of the film, MC Grindah said: “Japan is the most advanced city in the world so it makes perfect sense that they would recognise our lyrical talent. We can’t wait to go over there and completely destroy the music scene. In a good way.”
Chabuddy G added: “You know me, I can sell anything mate. Ice to an Eskimo, halal meat to a racist vegan… selling garage music to Japan is water off a ducks beak mate.”
